    Flight Path 2030: Strength through diversity

    Two years after the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, the international aviation environment still remains challenging. Although passenger numbers increased again in tandem with the first reopening measures in 2021, the recovery varied considerably from region to region. International travel volumes, in particular, are still considerably lower than before the pandemic. By contrast, continental air traffic and business jet travel are developing very satisfactorily. In general, growth is expected to continue in the medium and long term. Besides increasing passenger numbers, this is also being driven by new mobility concepts and communication channels. FACC has established a pole position in all of these growth markets, and is working intensively on the implementation of its FACC 2030 growth strategy.

Passenger numbers have been steadily increasing again since the second half of 2021, with the long-term trend pointing upwards, as was the case prior to the pandemic.
